Plastic milling on homemade CNC # CNC1000
I made this CNC machine myself in 2015, videos of the same year. For a long time I was asked to make a video on the assembly of this machine, later my hard drive broke, by some miracle I found some materials on this machine on another medium. After almost 4 years I will publish the materials, as I did with my own hands a CNC machine tool from the available materials.
These were successful doubles, the first attempts to mill plastic on the CNC. Two-way milling cutter for wood, for plastic it is better to use a single-cutter, because plastic melts and sticks to the milling cutter. If plastic chips stick to the mill, then the mill will most likely break or turn black from overheating.
This toy is also called "elevator for balls". Marble machine made of cardboard.
This device helped me to saw a bundle of rolled metal at an angle of 90 degrees without effort.
The 3D model of the fan is very simple, easily wound on a collet clamp. I put it on my CNC machine. The first launch proved to be very good, all the chips are scattered to the sides, clean under the cutter.
Almost all toys bought for the daughter do not cause the child's interest, which can not be said about developing toys made by themselves. Below is a photo of the simplest developing mat, which the wife made for a couple of evenings from old buttons.
The idea of assembling a homemade CNC machine appeared long ago. Lack of knowledge and necessary details. Today there is everything!
